Get creative with knot tying

One of my guilty TV pleasures is catching up with the 90210 kids (new version) over a lazy weekend in front of the TV.
A stand out fashion figure on screen as well as off is the delightful Gillian Zinser… Oh how I wish to live by the seaside and exude that cool surfer girl vibe!On my daily web hunt I came across this pic of Gillian at People magazine’s StyleWatch event in LA this week.I might have to give this simple ‘tie a knot in a maxi dress’ look a whirl come summer – I will post pics if successful, if not I will be crying into my vodka tonic that I am not young enough to pull off such a feat!
Too cool for school!
It actually reminds me of a look I sampled in the 1990s, the days when you would take the bottom of your t-shirt and loop it through the neck, et voilĂ  a crop top t-shirt was born - You remember trying this don’t you, I know i'm not alone

The shopping bug and the online cure!

I had the shopping bug yesterday, daydreaming about shopping and organising a little after work trip to le Trafford Centre! Sadly my tiredness took over and so I plonked myself in front of the TV with my laptop and to entertain me!

Finally I join the clog club!

Navy tailored shorts to see me through spring

One hour later, two purchases made…. Easy peasy! My bug was cured - Instant remedy!

If only I could look as impossibly chic as Tilda Swinton in this photo – must try harder, must try harder!

Tilda Swinton - Simply stunning

I loved the whole Jil Sander SS11 collection - the vibrant palette and simplicity of the pieces. On my shopping list; fresh white t-shirts and bright colour infusions!

One of my five a day?

I don’t eat enough fruit, honestly who does? But I am looking differently now at the delights a little Mediterranean orange or a lemon can offer…

A squeeze of lemon & lime!
Look no further than The SS11 collection from Stella McCartney… and now I await the high street equivalent to add a bit of zest in my life!

Well hello there 2011!

I could quite easily make a long list of new year resolutions, incorporating such things as shopping a little less, exercising more and so forth – but where is the fun in that?! I am going to embrace 2011 with all the things I love doing and those that put a smile on my face… travelling, reading, shopping and eating great food!

First to tick off the list is a city break, Copenhagen beckons as I jet off next weekend for four days in delightful Denmark. On the agenda is catching up with an old friend, sampling some great restaurants and perhaps a visit to see the little mermaid statue! Can’t wait!

In the meantime, I am trying the whole exercise thing! I have just got my hands on an Xbox 360 Kinect console – fitness in my own home seems much more appealing than the gym right now! Must dash - I am about to join the Zumba fitness party!

Flat stomach here I come!
